The lights are on
Borderlands 2 players are reporting a bug in the game that wipes your Badass rank and tokens entirely, resetting them zero. Even worse, the challenges you completed don't reset, making it impossible to re-earn your Badass rank.
"Our engineers are looking into this, and the information you've provided has proven to be a great resource while we investigate," Gearbox says. "At the moment, it seems to be a fairly rare issue and we'll keep you updated on when we resolve it."
Reports indicate the bug affects the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game. YouTube user RyogaWanderer made a video showing the bug in action.
There are a few bugs but I'm confident they'll be fixed soon. The scrolling ones are quite annoying, though not as severe as this one. Yikes.
Wow. This is upsetting...
i guess its a good thing i cant play the game right meow!
While that does suck, I have complete faith in Gearbox to straighten this out.
That sucks I hope when I get it agine it will be fixed Im sure gearbox is on it so i just hope
As somebody who's only gotten his hands on the game over the weekend, but has already put more than ten hours into it, that title read something like a horror story.
Well not to nag but this made me mad: last night im playing a game with my friends and theyre at the slots at moxxxi's place and i had a full inventory of blue, purple, and orange guns at level, i had to go so i just quit and shut off my xbox. Today i sign in and my character is gone and i had to start a new chracter. I did have me badass points and skins but now i have to spend another weekend ranking up.
Now I'm all nervous because I signed up for Shift. I haven't had an issue yet but I hope it doesn't show up at all...
I would say the other word but it's censored...
that makes me not wanna play....
Just got the game and will hold off until this is fixed. That would make me very unhappy and I would develop some game rage. Yes it does exist.
I seriously hope I don't ever encounter this bug. Might make me say goodbye to Pandora.
Ouch! Fingers crossed that dosen't happen to me.
Hope this helps! I picked up the game at midnight launch and played with a friend on his playstation 3, we were not connected to Internet in anyway, nor have he, or me for that matter, signed up for shift, we were also playing on the same ps3 profile but my character (second player) lost all of their badass rank and skins after the first time we stopped playing. We saved and quit correctly and everything, so far that characters badass rank is working but not the skins...
Oh! Also we started the game at the same time but different characters and your badass rank is supposed to be the same between your characters but we each earned our own, maybe that had something to do with it but the point is all of my other characters that are on their own profiles on my playstation are fine so my best guess would be to keep your friends characters on separate profiles.
Yikes - let's hope Gearbox has a patch soon that will fix this for the poor guy in the video!
First thing I did when popping in the game on launch night was create a Shift Account before I had even created a character yet.
Glad I went this route. I would be upset to lose those tokens I worked for!
So is this only happening when someone signs up for shift?
